      The Elders:  The Genders: God’s God’s Design for Women.mp3[powerpress]      WARNING: Each of the lessons in this series are longer than normal due to the depth and accuracy needed to cover this subject. Average duration is 1.5 hours per recording. Our church went through an amazing transformation at the end of 2010. By the Lord’s direction, we switched from a solitary female Pastor led group to a all male elder led New Testament church. The change did not come easy! This is our story… In June of 2010, I (Pastor Mark) was infrequently attending a bible […]

Is God Sovereign?

[avatar user=”admin” size=”30×30″ align=”right”] Let’s begin by establishing what we mean by the word “Sovereign”. There is no generally accepted meaning to this word even though Webster seems to make it clear, religious people (both Christian and otherwise) have deliberated needlessly over this word for millennia. As for OUR purposes in this study we will establish the  meaning as – to possess the exclusive right to exercise, within specific jurisdictions, the functions of a potentate and within such jurisdictions – to be answerable to no higher authority. In the case of God, this is perhaps realized in no greater way than in […]
